Subject: very long ping

For the last few days it has been more and more difficult to get mail
from my SIMS server.

It appears to work OK when looking at the logs, black lists do their jobs
but very often it would hang on.
It is then impossible to Timbuktu to the box and even ping time is
between 500 ms and 1.5 seconds (I am connecting from France to a amchine
in the US). Usually ping are 185-200 ms.

As soon as I quit SIMS , pings come back to normal and I can use Timbuktu
again without being interrupted.

I don't really know what to do. can it be memory related ? The box is a
AWS 7250 with 80 Mb of RAM (40 allocated to SIMS) on OS 8.6. It has been
running like that for 4 years but those problems started to appear 2
weeks ago and are getting worse every day.

Is there something I should try ?
